Q.

Constant gout attacks

I originally got gout five years ago following multiple drugs to control pain due to a hip operation. The gout came on three years after the operation. Seven months ago it return with a vengeance over my entire foot. Since then I have had constant attacks and can not get it out of my system. I have changed my diet dramatically, no meat,purine rich Fish or shell fish, no purine vegetable. I drink 10pints of fluid a day,water,coffee, diet soda. No alcohol. I have vitamin c supplements every morning and a black cherry yoghurt for breakfast I have had ibrofen, Extorib, colchicine, and steroids both oral and injected in to my toe. All with the same result. Once the course is finished, back comes the gout. I am at my wits end now and can not stand anymore pain. All the doctor and the specialist I have seen privately say Allopurinol once the pain has subsided. The pain however does not go completely. I would be grateful for any help you could give me Mrs C Robins
